Old Macdonald Had a Farm…

May 23, 2017 by Ellie Linton

Nursery had a fantastic time on their trip to Smithills Farm last week! During the action-packed day the children enjoyed donkey rides, feeding the animals and a tractor ride. They then spent time in the reptile area learning all about snakes and lizards, and got to stroke lots of animals in the pets corner, including lamas, chicks, rabbits, guinea pigs and owls. There was also a demonstration on how cows are milked using a special machine- we liked learning where the milk we drink in the morning comes from!

“I liked the farm! I liked holding the chicks. The tractor ride was fun.” – Aisha Rauf

“The trip was brilliant! There was lots to see and do. It was very well organised by the Smithills farm staff. They guided us through every part of the trip, explaining what was going to happen next. The pets corner was my favourite part!” – Mrs Iqbal
